Italian automaker Lamborghini will convert its Huracan supercar to a gasoline-electric power plant. According to the brand, the new engine will preserve the driving emotions traditional for the brand’s cars, but at the same time, it will enable engineers to get an increase in power and torque, making the car even more dynamic and fast. And besides, it’s also very technologically advanced, since it will receive its own exclusive power plant.
Lamborghini Chief Technology Officer Rouven Mohr told Auto Express that the existing naturally aspirated V10 will be replaced by a petrol-electric power plant. The internal combustion engine has more than six and less than 12 cylinders, but these are all the details that are still known about the new product.
While the Volkswagen Group already has V8-based hybrids in its range, the Italian marque is said to be getting a unique powertrain that Audi, Bentley, and Porsche don’t have.
It is expected that they can be either a completely new hybrid unit based on the current V10, with a capacity of over 850 horsepower, or an existing hybrid with a V8, but equipped with special units and has its own settings. Recall that according to plan Lamborghini by 2024, all models in the brand line will have a hybrid version. The first mass-produced hybrid should be a variant of the Urus crossover, followed by the petrol-electric Huracan and the successor to the Aventador model.
